massacre n. The act or an instance of killing a large number of humans indiscriminately and cruelly. Or in Sunspeak Posh and Becks dismiss 14 staff to save cash. I wonder if the word 'massacre' will be applied by the Sun when all the public service workers get the boot.
I am a freelance journalist based in the UK and was deputy editor of Press Gazette, the journalists' magazine, from 1993 until 2006. I want to give an independent view on media matters.
